lower cost sports-free tv package. this so called skinny package would cost between $20 and $40 a month and would drop channels like espn and the major broadcast networks including nbc. the new option expected to be available some time later this year. stwiter has kicked around the idea of offering a premium or membership subscription purchase. jack dorsey was asked about it yesterday. he said twitter considered the idea in the past, although as a general practice, they have always felt the service should be free and open. in march, reports said twitter was considering a premium version of the tweet deck. back to you. >> thank you very much. good to see you. >> breaking news to get to right now out of sunnyvale where there's a large fire right now at a commercial business. firefighters, we have been told, have been called to lake side and titan way. this is about a block or so away from the lawrence expressway. kris sanchez is on her way to the scene. she'll bring us a live report
4:41 am
shortly. >> coming up, what goes up must come down. the temperatures are what's on the way down today, kari. >> we're so glad for that because it's been so hot. and looking at the temperature trend for cupertino, it will be in the low 60s at 9:00 this morning. into the upper 70s today. slightly above normal, but our temperatures continue to cool down as we go through the week. we'll have a look at that next. and our live look over here shows you the berkeley curve. it's slow, but there's construction. you see that at the top of the screen? they should be picking it up in the next new minutes. that might be what's causing extra slowing. they're only letting one lane of cars pass through. >> something to keep an eye on, mike and kari. thank you. >> it's electrifying how the trump administration is helping caltrain handing over millions of dollars.
4:42 am
4:43 am
4:44 am
new video to show you, and an unusual call sunday for coast guard crews near tampa, florida. they had to stabilize a boat running at full speed with no one behind the wheel. the boaters were thrown into the water when it struck into another vessel. crew tried to throw a net around the vessel, that didn't work.
4:45 am
then someone jumped aboard just to slow it down. there's no video from that part which took about an hour to get it under control. a mystery at sea. >> yes, indeed. sure that wasn't a promo for the baywatch movie coming up. >> they would have put some bodies in there. >> it's also national boat safety week. i don't think that's what they had in mind. >> keep a driver in every boat. >> and a life vest, for that matter. >> a lot of people were heading to the water because it's been so hot lately. it's going to start to feel a little bit more like normal as we go into the next several days. looking now, as you get ready to step out the door, still very warm in some spots like the tri-valley at 61 degrees. 58 degrees in the peninsula. 57 degrees in the east bay, and san francisco is feeling much nicer, 52 degrees with patchy fog. highs later today will be reaching into the upper 80s in the tri-valley, so it will still be well above average, up to 81 degrees in the peninsula. and the south bay, 84 degrees.
4:46 am
64 degrees in san francisco. so you can see the spread in those temperatures. for the north bay, up to 81 degrees today which is better than the 90s we just had. if you're lookingute the window, all clear skies, getting ready for the day with mild temperatures, no need for a jacket, and another day for some sandals and short sleeves. over the next several days, we'll be able to put on more layers, especially with cooler mornings on the way. as we go through the day planner in oakland. at 8:00, 59 degrees. lunchtime temperature at 67. it's going to be beautiful in oakland as we go through the day, all of that sunshine and temperatures reaching into the low 70s. and we know it's starting to turn a lot more brown, dry looking out there, around the bay area. and if you're just wondering how we're doing on rain, still very well. if we don't get another drop for the rest of the water year, we're still at 170% of average for santa rosa. oakland at 141% of average.
4:47 am
and san francisco measuring over 32 inches of rain, still doing very well. even in san jose, over the normal amount we get for the water year at 18.4 inches of rain. and as you can see, there is no more drops of rain in this forecast. looking over the next seven days, and our temperatures heading steady in the low to mid 60s in san francisco. for the inland areas, it still will be warm today, but it starts to get nicer for tomorrow, and that trend continues for the rest of the week. this weekend, long weekend for some, will be a great one to get outside and enjoy the cooler weather. as we head over to mike, now you're checking on the berkeley curve again. >> maybe a longer drive for some because kari, look, we still have this construction or the overnight road crew blocking lanes. i checked. it was scheduled for 5:30, so they're not late picking up. i apologize. they're still doing their work, but i do see some of the vehicles starting to clear.
4:48 am
you're restricted to one lane down through berkeley. this is a stream of traffic heading to the bay bridge, but these are folks heading south. so that's the restriction right there coming out of berkeley and over in toward perhaps the rest of oakland. we show a smooth flow of traffic. as far as the chicklets, the green flowing area, also the richmond san rafael bridge, and the rest of the bay, no delays. let's take you to waze because of the delay at the berkeley curve. i would plot the travel times. waze still reports it's probably the best to take your normal roult and prepare for the small bit of slowing. you can check waze whenever you're going to leave throughout the day, throughout the week. check your phone and make sure you're on the app, you're a member of our team, nbc bay area wazers. you hit the magnifying glass, watch this. boom, your profile. there's your team. there's your team right there, nbc bay area wazers. so you can support the warriors and the wazers. back to you. >> whatever it takes. thanks so much.
4:49 am
>> 4:48. incredible video of a massive land slide at big sur that really changed the coastline. the area was also closed off after several rock and landslides over the winter, but things got much worse over the weekend. completely wiping out a huge section of highway 1. the highway is closed from limestone creek bridge to a half mile south of big sur. >> in a tug of war over federal money, the trump administration is going to hand over $650 million to electrify caltrain after all. president obama initially approved the money, but the trump white house then balked at signing the final document. congressional pressure could be what finally helped to free up the funds. right now, caltrain runs on diesel, but the agency says electrifying the trains will not only be eco friendly but commuter friendly as well. >> that allows for more trains per day because they can run closer together because they can
4:50 am
accelerate and decelerate faster, and it means longer train cars. >> once electrified, one engine will be able to pull seven cars in comparison to four. within about four years, caltrain says it will double its current capacity. >> vta members today will provide an up-close progress report on the new b.a.r.t. station. the station to berryessa will happen next year. they're inviting planners and researchers to take a tour of that construction site. grab your hard hat. >> ready. up next, we investigate. >> the system is set up, really, to fail people who don't have attorneys. a court where money and legal representation make all the difference. coming up, we investigate inequities in u.s. immigration
4:51 am
court. but first right now, we're staying on top of breaking news. a terror attack, of course, yesterday in manchester, and another scare in that same british city. police have evacuated a shopping center in central manchester. some folks there reportedly lev the scene in tears while others waited outside the mall. officers did arrest a man there, but that arrest is not believed to be connected to yesterday's attack. back with more news in two minutes.
4:52 am
food. water. internet. we need it to live. but what we don't need are surprises, like extra monthly fees. i see you, fee, played by legendary actress anjelica huston. you got me, mark. we just want fast internet for one, simple rate. for all the streaming and the shopping and the newsing, but most of all... for the this. internet for one everyday simple price and no extra monthly fees.
4:53 am
as we take a live look outside right now. that, of course, is san jose and the city lights shining brightly this morning. we have one day already in the books. hope you're off to a great tuesday. we're happy you're waking up with us.
4:54 am
where. >> the trump administration wants a san francisco judge to reconsider his ruling that blocked the president's order to cut funding to sanctuary cities. the administration filed paperwork yesterday asking the judge to reconsider or clarify the ruling in light of a new memo by attorney general jeff sessions. that memo says the order applies to a small amount of money. the judge already rejected that argument before. the case that blocked the order was brought to court by santa clara county and the city of san francisco. >> a bill that stops landlords from threatening to call immigration authorities on tenants has been approved by california state assembly. that bill by david chu regulates how they act with immigration agents. >> when you face criminal charges in court, you get an attend, even if you can't afford one. >> that doesn't apply to u.s. immigration court. that can make a huge difference. >> well, good morning. you know, we dug through
4:55 am
immigration court outcomes compiled by the transactional records access clearing-house or trac, at syracuse university, and there we found people who appear in u.s. immigration court with an attorney are five times more likely to prevail than those who do not have a lawyer. nowhere is that in more stark contrast and more apparent than here in san francisco in the case of u.s. navy veteran joaquin sotelo. when we caught up with him, he was days away from being deported despite a history of military service. only the last-minute intervention by a lawyer with san francisco's legal firm kept him here in the bay area and his case moving forward in u.s. immigration court. sotelo was one of more than 300 non-citizen u.s. veterans who faced deportation when they committed a crime after leaving the u.s. military service. in his case, he was able to reunite with his children, whom he hadn't seen during four years
4:56 am
of legal back and forth. children he likely would never have seen again on american soil if he had been deported. homeland security officials tell me they are merely enforcing existing laws by deporting these veterans who break the law after their service, and a u.s. immigration court judge told me that judges' hands are tied ipimmigration court by these outdated laws that need to change. if you want to know more, see our full story tonight at 6:00 or go to our website, nbcbayarea.com/weinvestigate. back to you. >> thank you, stephen. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call, 888-996-tips. >> 4:56 on your tuesday. coming up, breaking news just in to our newsroom in the last 15 to 20 minutes. we'll take you live to the scene of a commercial fire going on right now in sunnyvale. >> and temperatures going down today. especially along the coast, and starting to feel it for the inland valleys, too.
4:57 am
we'll take a look at what to expect as the temperatures still above average but dipping as we go through the week. that's coming up next. and we're looking at the backup still here for the berkeley curve. you see the flashing lights there creeping back. we'll track this restricted lane flow for the east bay. and more breaking developments overseas. chilling images coming in to our news room after the horrific suspected terror attack in manchester, england. we're live as investigators continue to search for answers this morning. ♪
4:58 am

4:59 am
proudly caring for northern california, birthplace of pioneers. a spirit through years of conflict and terrorism has never been broken and will never be broken. there will be difficult days ahead. >> breaking news coverage on the suspected terror attack in manchester, england, continues. news of an arrest coming in to our newsroom. this after an explosion erupts outside an ariana grande concert leaving nearly two dozen dead. >> and breaking news in the south bay. firefighters here responded to a blaze in sunnyvale. you see them using the fire ladders right now, dousing it. kris sanchez is live from the scene. she'll be bringing us a report momentarily. >> good morning. thank you for joining us on this tuesday. i'm sam brock. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon.
5:00 am
want to check the forecast as well. temperatures will be dropping today. we'll feel it? >> yes, we'll feel it a little today. it will still be warm this afternoon for a couple hours. i think this will be much more comfortable than the weather we had recently. so looking at what to expect as we get a live look outside at san jose, the sun rising. you can see the skies are clear. it's 60 degrees as you head out with a high today of 84 degrees, which is still well above where we should be, and looking at that temperature trend, we'll spend most of the morning and early afternoon in the 60s and 70s. so we'll talk more about that and what's ahead as the temperatures continue to dip. as we head over to mike, now you're tracking two delays? >> yeah, one is for the b.a.r.t. system, continuing as far as their report goes out of daly city, that's the abbreviation for that. they're doing track maintenance after the weekend derailment in the area. this is not causing a problem other than a minor delay right now.
